perot's running mate did, in 1992. don't look like you have someplace better to be as president george bush did that same year when he checked his watch during a question. finally, be careful who you compare yourself to. >> i have as much experience in the congress as jack kennedy did. >> reporter: in 1988, vice presidential candidate dan quayle made that mistake against lloyd bentsen. >> i knew jack kennedy. jack kennedy was a friend of mine. senator, you're no jack kennedy. ( cheers and applause ) >> reporter: in the era of scripted and stage-managed candidates, the debates offer something increasingly dangerous-- the chance of a spontaneous moment. anthony mason, cbs news, new york. >> pelley: and that's the "cbs evening news." we'll be right back at 6:00 with tonight's debate. i'm scott pelley in denver. see you in a minute. [monotone] she says, "switch to progressive and you could save hundreds."
. it was clear by the microphones while george w. bush was talking. it played into a larger narrative into the campaigns. it re-inforced what the audience thought about the candidates. >> when gore sighed endlessly and moaned during the debate and we saw that on television, it just emphasized the idea that he was arrogant and condescending, something people were already concerned about. when nixon was sweating, there was some sense that he was already shifty and there was an anxiety in his soul as well as his body. >> that's what the question in this campaign is about. >> reporter: in a later debate that year gore appeared to invade the personal space of bush. >> i believe i can. >> reporter: a move which made him look awkward compared to his relaxed opponent. in 1992 george h.w. bush was caught twice by cameras glancing at his watch during a town hall debate with voters which reinforced the suggestion he was disengaged and uninterested. >> when something is as close as it is now a small shift may create a forward movement in one direction or another. that's why these debates become g
that seem to say more, like george w. bush looking at his watch. >> tell you what, 10,000 bet. >> reporter: and obama's comment to then-rival hillary clinton. >> you're likeable enough. >> reporter: one thing they do agree on. the debate maybe romney's big chance. >> it's hard to be likeable when you're -- >> you've got to know obama really well. there's not a lot of room left on his canvas to paint. mitt romney, he's still got a little white space on his canvas. >> reporter: the president will be spending the first part of the week in nevada. in the meantime, romney will be campaigning in colorado, also a swing state, and playing to the role for him will be ohio senator rob portman. in the newsroom, i'm grace lee, cbs 5. >> and, of course, cbs 5 will have special live coverage of the presidential debate beginning at 6 p.m. on wednesday. >>> constant thumping, all the windows rattling. >> but the police didn't want to hear about it. why people in one bay area city were told, stop calling 911! >>> and new rules that make it tougher for parents to opt out of vaccinating their kids, or do t
against george w. bush in 2004. the reason the obama campaign is working so hard to play down expectations is because they like the trajectory of the race right now and don't want to do anything to change that. norah and charlie? >> no doubt. nancy cordes, thank you. both sides are trying to lower expectations for the debate. any misstep has the potential to derail a campaign. and both candidates have both good and bad moments from their debate history. >> john, you're absolutely right that presidents have to be prudent in what they say. but, you know, coming from you, you know, in the past threaten extinction for north korea and sung songs about bombing iran, i don't know how credible that is. >> he's very likable. i agree with that. i don't think i'm that bad. >> you're likable enough. >> thank you. i appreciate that. >> mr. speaker, i know that sounds like an enormous revelation, but have you checked your own investments? you also have investments with mutual funds that also invest in fanny mae and freddie mac. >> right. >> rick, i'll tell you what, 10,000 bucks, $10,000 bet? >> i'm not
reagan, reagan stood up to it. and it was true for george h.w. bush. he had a moment to knock out bill clinton and he didn't. >> schieffer: this debate will be about domestic affairs. i want to ask you something about the foreign policy front. the administration has basic plea changed its account of what happened in libya, where our u.s. ambassador was killed. they said, susan rice said on this broadcast last sunday, after the president of libya said this was the work of terrorists, she said, no, this was because of a spontaneous demonstration that had to do with that film. now they have come around to saying, well, yes, it was a terrorist attack. is mitt romney making enough of this? i haven't heard too much from him on that. >> bob, what struck me-- and i have nope the director of national intelligence for years. he's a bright man. he's a competent man. this administration in effect is now saying, "oh, don't blame the united nations ambassador. don't blame the white house spokesman. don't blame the president, because our intelligence system failed so decisively." i don't know which w
by china and other countries as well. what he didn't mention was that china was buying that up when george w. bush was president as well. but the fact that i had to point that out on the air tonight is an illustration of what barack obama didn't do. the president frankly should have been politely in his face, saying that's not accurate, just like the presentation about romney's health care program. the president should have merely said the governor is being a hypocrite. he did this in massachusetts. and the president frankly didn't do that tonight. i think that's the reason that people said that they gave the nod to mitt romney tonight. in the end, we've seen how people are going to vote in november. we've got two more debates to do. i think you'll see a different barack obama in two weeks. >> joe is going to be with us next week for the vice presidential debate, giving us analysis then. >> thanks so much. >>> you know, it would take hours for a full debate fact check, so we're just going to look at two, courtesy of the associated press. president obama suggested that the united states wil
should note that polls showed most americans thought that gore won his first debate with george w. bush. we know how that turned out. >>> meanwhile, mitt romney offered a new take on his infamous 47% comment. he initially said those remarks were not elegantly stated. well, tonight he now called them, quote, just completely wrong. mr. romney was asked what he would have said if the president had brought up the 47% during last night's debate. >>> flooding, wind, landslides, those are just a few of the words that come to mind when we hear the phrase el nino, as we head into what likely will be another el nino winter, our meteorologist paul deanno dig some digging and found that not all el ninos are created equal. >> they are not. all signs are pointing towards the first el nino we have had since 2009, many of those winters packed with way too much rainfall, but sometimes, sometimes they are the exact opposite. the strongest el nino on record brought some of the worst weather the bay area has ever seen. the el nino winter of 1997-98 packed a powerful punch. relentless rainfall, more than a
in 2004, when i helped prepare george w. bush for his debate, the first big debate against john kerry. he had not debated in four years. he knew all the facts, but he hadn't been sharp fling the argumentes, youun the three points here, the three points here, the offense and the defense. i think something like that took place in this case. the president has not debated in four years. it was a wake-up call. i think he'll do better the next time, but i think it would be hard to do worst. >> schieffer: best hitters always have to take batting practice, and maybe he needed some batting practice. john, do you think mitt romney has gone to the etch a sketch here? is he still the conservative he was when he was running against rick santorum and some of those folks or did he actually move to the middle during this debate? >> certainly there was some rhetoric moving to the middle. but remember, mitt romney has one advantage with his conservative base-- his opponent is barack obama. and barack obama has already demonstrated through executive orders and all kinds of things that he will have a very ac
techniques. he's helped george w. bush and john mccain. he coached mitt romney during the primaries. >> the object is to capture the imagination of both the audience and the press to make sure your message gets covered. one way to do that is to have a clever line >> schieffer: no one could deliver a line like ronald reagan. >> i will not make age an issue of this campaign. i am not going to exploit for political purposes my opponent's youth and inexperience. (laughing) >> schieffer: with those words reagan turned concern that he had gotten old and doddy on its head. challenger walter mondale said later when i heard that, i knew i had lost. what would you consider successful debate? >> the things that matter the most to the voters, to hell with the candidates and to hell with the moderators and to hell with the handlers and to hell with the pundits, but the things that voters care the most about have been discussed and have been discussed in a way that they can now understand what the differences are. that's what these debates are really all about. >> do ever get sick of each other?
cain and even president george w. bush. but when he was transferred to ohio to face charges, the man authorities believed to be thompson signed in to prison as mister x, leading ofgs ining of believe he was hiding something more. >> major fraud fugitives. >> u.s. marshal peter elliott said by simply searching the internet he found an fbi wanted posted for a similar-looking man, john donald cody, harvard educated attorney who mysterious disappeared from his arizona law practice in 1984 and was later indicted in four counts of estate fraud. original wanted posters described a man without tear ducts. former landlady was called who said her one-time tenant left behind something unusual, two big bottles of eye drops. >> it's said that he had no tear ducts, that he had to use eye drops all the time. in my world, in our world, one and one equals two. >> reporter: also left behind in that apartment, one dvd. >> it's been a while since i've done this. which one is the jump seat again? >> reporter: a fugitive on the run in "catch me if you can." but it wasn't until the fbi searched the military's own fing
gone on to win after less-than-stellar first debate performances. ronald reagan in 1984, george w. bush in 2004. norah, charlie, gayle? >> bill plante, thank you. >>> also in denver, major garrett, national journalist white house correspondent. good morning. >> good morning. >> so, what does the romney campaign have to do now to take advantage of what everybody believes was a victory in the debate? >> well, charlie, there's a very simple answer to that, and two romney campaign officials told it to me before the debate started -- if this night works for us, our biggest challenge will be not dousing the flame we've set tonight, meaning they know that they've internally messed up advantages and advantageous moments mitt romney set for his campaign. so, they know now the most important thing between this debate and the next one is not to blow the momentum, to enhance it, blow on the fire and make it larger and not douse it. that's the biggest challenge the romney campaign faces. >> what's the challenge for the obama campaign? >> to bounce back. two very significant democrats i talked to las
it was the most tweeted about political event in u.s. history. ari fleischer, press secretary to george w. bush big bird needs to ask dora the explorer how she manages to survive without federal money. try it big bird. you'll be just fine. joan rivers attention pbs, if mitt romney fire big bird i'm ready to fill in. i've got the perfect outfit. president obama did not pounce directly during the debates but did thursday on the trail. >> when asked what he would actually do to cut the deficit and reduce spending he said he would eliminate funding for public television. thank goodness somebody is finally getting tough on big bird! it's about time. we didn't know that big bird was driving the federal deficit. >> reporter: last night, the late night show ss had fun with it, too. >> [ bleep ] fire big bird! >> reporter: for years, conservatives have accused pbs of having a liberal buy asias, arguing its federal funds aren't justified. >> we are clearly, as a country, facing such significant challenges. but to talk about pbs in budget issues to me is unbelievable. >> reporter:
george w. bush. >> president bush and i were fraternity brothers together in college. despite our political differences we were very close friends. >> reporter: davis sees his role as an educator, teaching members of congress about his clients' issues. >> the most important function a lobbyist provides is to provide facts and information. >> reporter: but first they have to get their foot in the door. >> hi, congressman, how are you? reporter: the business of lobbying is shrouded in secrecy. >> great to meet you. reporter: we were given rare access to the inner workings. including this networking event for lobbyists and their guests. >> i really specialize in technology and helping those small technology companies through the process. >> you find that champion for your cause and you ride that for all its worth. >> reporter: our cameras were allowed along on actual lobby visits, being conducted most any time congress is in session. davis is such a familiar face in the halls of the capitol, republican congresswoman mary bono mack greets him with a kiss. >> lobbyists trade on -- if y
saying he would take the country back to the same policies under george w. bush that led to the worst economic crisis since the great depression. romney, he laid out his five-point plan but really the only specific we heard there was that would create four million jobs through energy independence. so for the romney campaign they want you to think 8.1% unemployment and think barack obama and the obama campaign wants you to think 47%. they want you to think of romney's effective tax rate at 14%. but the president didn't go there tonight. he missed those opportunities and left an opening for the romney campaign. >> pelley: >> pelley: juliana, thank you very much. joining us right now is major garrett from "national journal." one of the subjects covered tonight was health care, the affordable care act which some people call obamacare a term the president endorsed tonight. he said he liked that term. i wonder what you thought of the cases that were made by governor romney and the president on health care. >> scott great to be with you. i thought the health care debate was a prism into whic
